I was born in Carlisle and since then have moved around the country and abroad. I have a deep love of outdoor life so finally settling in Lincolnshire is a real delight. The great skies and distances are made for fresh and clear watercolour. I started painting about 4 years ago, landscapes with water appeal most but I like to have a building or structure of some kind to offset the gentleness of nature. The contrast between tones and shapes with deep, clear colours is exciting and I try to convey this in my work. The Norfolk Coast and southern Ireland have introduced me to the enjoyment of boats and coastlines. Commissions are welcome, I paint from photographs and also sketches and paintings done in situ.
